Indian men’s hockey team face setback in FIH Pro League against Great Britain | Hockey News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Indian men’s hockey team experienced a setback in the FIH Pro League, falling 1-3 to hosts Great Britain in their second match of the London leg. This came after a remarkable 3-0 victory over world champions Germany led by Harmanpreet Singh the previous day.
Great Britain’s Bandurak Nicholas netted two field goals in the 2nd and 11th minutes, while Calnan Will added another in the 47th minute. Abhishek salvaged a goal for India with a field effort in the 35th minute.

Despite earning eight penalty corners, India couldn’t capitalize on any of them, mirroring Great Britain’s inability to convert their five penalty corners into goals. In the FIH rankings, India holds the third spot, one position above Great Britain.
Looking ahead, India will face Germany on June 8th in their next match. The team will seek to address inconsistencies and build on their strengths, aiming for better results in the upcoming fixtures.
The contrasting performances against Germany and Great Britain underscore the importance of consistency and adaptability at the international level, providing valuable lessons for the Indian hockey contingent as they pursue success in the FIH Pro League and beyond.
